Two arrested on human-trafficking complaints after police respond to escort advertisement

Two people were arrested on human-trafficking complaints when police reportedly found them hiding in a closet while investigators were responding to an online escort advertisement Tuesday afternoon.
Morgan Palmer, 19, and Daylin Fay, 18, were booked into the Tulsa Jail just before 4 p.m. on a complaint of human trafficking, according to jail records.
Officers reported finding Palmer and Fay when they responded to a Backpage com advertisement for a “young looking” woman, according to their arrest and booking reports.
An officer met a girl at an apartment, where she reportedly agreed to perform a sexual act for money, according to the report.
When the officer identified himself as a police officer, the girl said other people were in the closet and told police she was 15 years old, according to the report.
Officers reportedly found Palmer, Fay and another man in the closet, according to the report. Police did not release the name of the other man.
An officer wrote in the report that human traffickers often stay close to victims “to act as security.”
